For Dealers

How to Invest

Your investment will help guarantee a continuing supply of high-quality students pursuing automotive studies. All investments go toward fulfilling the foundation’s mission, not administrative expenses. Dealers who serve on the foundation’s board of directors govern the finances of the foundation and a respected investment firm professionally manages the foundation’s assets.

The Iowa Automobile Dealers Foundation for Education is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All contributions are tax-deductible. Consult with your tax advisor for more details.

There are several options for donating to the foundation, including corporate or personal checks, appreciated stock, and payment plans. Other methods of donation include:

  • Dues Donation: Make a voluntary contribution on your yearly IADA dues statement.
  • Cash Donation: Gifts can be through one-time contributions or pledged over several years. We accept corporate or personal checks.
  • Estate Planning: Include the IAD Foundation for Education in your estate plans.
